Introducing the New Kingspan GreenGuard LG XPS Insulation Board

March 02, 2021

The Kingspan GreenGuard LG XPS Insulation Board product line will continue with our 25-year history of:

  • The same green foam color
  • The same high R-value of 5 per inch
  • The same wide range of compressive strengths including 25 psi, 40 psi, 60 psi
  • The same superior moisture resistance

There are also improvements and changes:

  • The new formulation will have a GWP (Global Warming Potential) of less than 50!
  • The board face print will be blue!
  • New literature specific to the LG product line with new product numbers: GG25-LG, GG40-LG, and GG60-LG. We believe these new product numbers will enhance the communications regarding which product a customer is requesting and expecting.
  • GreenGuard® XPS LG (low GWP formula) is a premium product with ZERO ODP and <50 GWP.
  • HFC134-A has been completely eliminated.

This new product line is fully in support of the Kingspan Group’s world-wide Planet Passionate Initiative.

New Regulations

GreenGuard XPS currently contains a zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) blowing agent. New laws and regulations are being implemented to lower the Global Warming Potential (GWP) impact of the product.

  • These new regulations are overall very positive and Kingspan is fully in support of this effort
  • Our approach is a measured and customer focused approach
